      Our loot was quite bad and we unfortunately didn't have an Assassin with us for fast boss kills. And of course, playing straight with no stopping, we didn't have the luxury of farming for any better gear, because we would have fallen asleep before finishing it all if we did so :P

    I hit 50 at like 35 hours, not that impressive tbh.

      We'd welcome your submission to the site, then, Tom.

      Playing for 43 hours straight without sleep was 10x harder than actually finishing the game in 43 hours.

    Seriously confused by this.. I have less than 20 hours in the game and I am level 39. It takes 20 more hours to do the last 10 levels? Also your not even hitting crits.. I feel like I am getting trolled. This isn't special at all.

    • The Internet gregergre

      Yeah right, that would be quite a feat, why don't you post proof?

    • The Internet Kelton312

      I have multiple friends in the same situation, on PC mind you. I realize its harder to aim with a controller but 43 hours doesn't seem record worthy to me even on a console.

      kelton, as an ambassador I will inform you that you are welcome to your opinion. However being one of two officials who were on hand, I can assure you this is truely a feat. Once you get to a certain level, the exp drops arent much to move your bar, so completing main story quests and side quests are essential.

    • The Internet Johnny

      I agree. You HAVE to focus on main story quests to increase xp, or else you're pretty much stagnant.

  • United States Dave Vogt

    Matt's a beast. :)

  • United States Eric Cummings

    Glad I caught this because it was a good guide while playing along and you looked like you enjoyed yourself =)

  • United States Matt Siegfried

    This was so much fun!

  • United States Josh Jones

    Dude, this is totally incredible. I had such a blast being there!
